Carl Jung is one of those pioneers whose ideas and discoveries have become absorbed into mainstream thinking. Notions of sychronicity, archetypes, collective unconscious, individuation, introvert and extrovert are all pretty much commonplace now - thanks to Jung and his followers.

Though not as hard to read as some people claim, Jung's own writings consist of some twenty volumes representing a long working life involved daily with the workings of his own and others' minds. Knowing where to start is in itself a challenge.

The strength of this book is its organisation and the clarity of its text. Ruth Snowden offers us 'bite sized' examples and explanations of Jung's writing and experience alongside slightly more lengthy discussions. She covers all the main points. It is easy to navigate your way around the chapters, and if you want you can easily pick and choose the parts that interest you and know where to go for more.

If you never read another book on Jung you would still emerge from reading this one with a clear understanding of the basics of his thought and why his emphasis on the importance of wholeness and integrity is more important now than ever before.

I came across this book when I was asked by a friend to recommend a relatively short summary of Jung's ideas . Having read it I find myself, despite fairly extensive reading of other texts about Jung, better informed and with a greater understanding of key topics in Jung's psychology. There are other books around which introduce Jung to the initiated as well as the uninitiated, but I found this one easily read, clear in it's outline, and effective in it's stated task . Overall an excellent book for all readers and highly recommended.

I needed a quick overview of Jung's ideas before exploring in greater depth elsewhere. This book is an easy to read introduction.

Very good introductory book. It gives me a thorough understanding of Jung's life in a way how one's family truly affected his life course. Also his work with Freud and how Jung elaborated and to work towards where his strength and interest is. Very inspiring to me in my marriage and family therapy training. Jung is definitely good at helping neurosis patients and from their dream analysis, he has great psychology theories being developed.

Fascinating overview of Jung's work, well organised and easy to comprehend. The author provides enough information to understand Jung's ideas without getting needlessly bogged down with details of concepts you might not be interested in exploring in depth, whetting the reader's appetite to investigate sections of Jung's work for themselves. Thoroughly recommended.

A very basic overview of Jungian psychology. The lack of proper citations from the Collected Works makes it less useful for academic purposes than the excellent, if more involved Jung: A Very Short Introduction (Very Short Introductions)

This is a very good basic introduction to Jungs ideas. The text is clear with explinations of any jargon used.
